This is true. If three straight lines are drawn, they can only intersect at two points. That is, each line will only intersect with another once.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Does three points intersect at a single point?

No, only three lines can intersect at a single point.

Can 3 lines intersect at only 1 point?

Assuming that the none of the lines are parallel, they can intersect (pairwise) at three points. Otherwise, the question is tautological.

How many line can intersect a point?

A point can be intersected by infinitely many lines. Two points intersect in only one line. Three points either intersect in a line or not at all. This is only considering two dimensions.

Can three lines intersect at only two points?

Yes. The easiest example is to take two parallel lines and use the third line as a transversal.

Yes, but only if they are mutually coincident.

Two lines only intersect at exactly one point?

Two straight lines, whether they're in the same or different planes, must intersect at either one point or else at no points.

Can three lines intersect in only one point?

Any number of lines can intersect all at the same point. Think of a circle. Now think of all of its diameters.
